We outshot them and had a 3-1 lead.  That's how I look at it with my pessimism.  We should have had a regulation win.    

Do you realize who is on our team right now? Or more importantly, who is not playing right now? lol.  There is zero reason to pessimistic after this win. Great game!

There is a difference between being bad on defense and turning the puck over.  Tatar backchecks well enough, but he does turn the puck over, and he does it in the wrong areas.  So I can see why Babcock is weary of putting him out there.  If you are turning it over at the blueline or in the neutral zone, you are not helping your team.  But I also think Babcock realizes they need offense, and Tatar obviously is very gifted.  Tatar will learn to be smarter with the puck.  It is more of an experience thing I think.  But I don't blame Babcock for sitting someone, anyone, for turning the puck over.

Ha wow... major some major sensitivity going on here.  We could have attempted a trade for bobby ryan, or maybe tried out Alex Semin last year.  I guess my point was Z and D are elite centers and playing them together makes us a one line team.  We should split them up for the same reason Crosby and Malkin are split up.


That being said, I do agree that there not a lot of winger options out there this year, and Weiss is a solid pickup.  I just think, like in past years, splitting up D and Z make us deeper.  It doesn't seem that outlandish as you guys are making it sound.

I think the best lines with what we have would be:







Holland should have got a legit top line winger in the offseason.  We already have two of the best centers in the league.  Dats and Z play better apart anyway.  I am still surprised that they think its a good idea to play them together.

Like when little Bert put Jensen on the LTIR? Everyone on the forum was for it. Trying to make an impression and a name for himself. Go back a few years. probert, kocur, grimson all practiced fighting. Tommy hearns used to box Mccarty lapointe etc..... There are tryout videos online of McKee fighting others in the USHL tryout camp. Every player has to play their game to earn a spot. You do what you have too to make it. 



Very simple: yes you do what you have too to win the job.

Just to disprove your outlandish, and idiotic comments:
